ELLE-MOI. D’un bout du monde à l’autre. is a hypnotic train journey. In this lively, choreographic and theatrical installation, Katia Gagné draws inspiration from the meditative imagery of her train travels. A darkly humorous and tender melding of memories and reality. The resulting work revolves around memory and instincts, its fertile blend of dance and video generating multiple superimpositions and layers. But our gaze invariably returns to the solo dancer in the flesh, Ève Garnier, a fiery and haunted figure who is accompanied by a choir of women in which different generations interact.
For her first TRACES-HORS-SENTIERS at Danse-Cité, Katia Gagné, surrounded by a panel of amazing female dancers, takes the stage to deliver a unique adventure, a blend of images, sounds, encounters, with a captivating sensitivity.
In each of our lives, at one time or another, there are pivotal junctures, boundaries to cross or not cross, stories, matters to settle.
